Temporary Internet Files

  User-178362 21:01 12 Sep 2005

There are 91,680KB Temporary Internet files on my sisters computer, that I think needs to go. What do you think to that. I would like to delete them, but would I be in the wrong I ask myself.

Created by browsing on the Web. Delete them and free up some space. It won't do any harm. It will soon be recreated again when you browse the web.

In fact it's amazing how many crap/temporary files build up over a short period of using the PC.

You can safely delete everything it finds.

Actually CleanUp! click here is a little easier for 'absolute beginners'.

Start > Internet > Right Click > Internet Properties > Left Click > General > Temporary Internet Files > Delete Files > Left Click.

You will see the Hour Glass and with the number of files she has, it could take a while. Just wait. It will do the job.

Or to clear up more than just Temp Internet Files; Start> All Programs> Accessories> System Tools> Disk Cleanup.

The "Other Options" tab also gives a 3rd Button to remove all but your most recent System Restore Point, if your system has been running without any problems and you have not installed new programs/devices for a while.
